Developed by the Phoenix Business Journal, ACE has recognized excellence in private corporations and within individuals in business for the past 20 years. According to the Business Journal, the goal of this award program is to develop an increasing sense of knowledge-sharing and community among these companies in Arizona. ACE recognition ranges from fastest-growing and largest companies to “CEO of the Year” and other individual honors such as “Innovator of the Year.”

Avella’s ranking as the second fastest-growing company was identified using a proprietary formula including a measurement of revenue growth over the past two years. Companies on the list are assessed by accounting firm CliftonLarsonAllen LLP. Avella received 481.15 out of a perfect score of 500.

“We’re proud to have a seat at the table among many of Arizona’s most established and recognized leaders in business,” said Rebecca M. Shanahan, CEO of Avella Specialty Pharmacy. “At Avella, our growth means much more to us than just corporate success. It has allowed us to dedicate resources to programs and services that make a difference in our community. It helps us reward our employees for their hard work and dedication. And it ensures that we have the ability to touch more lives by putting powerful, often life-saving, therapies in the hands of the people who need them most.”
